Re: Scrivener Update; Invalid Serial Number?!?!?!

It's semi-working as intended, in that the latest update was solely for Lit&Lat to change to a new license vendor. (The old one, eSellerate, went out of business. The new one is Paddle.) L&L went to a lot of effort to ensure that all the old licences would work with Paddle, but you do have t...

No problem, scshrugged! My response came across as a bit curmudgeonly, for which I apologize.

Re: Dashes and hyphens

Currently using Anonymous Pro, and echo your comments, AmberV. It's hard to distinguish among typographic dashes even in the monospaced fonts with the most distinct glyphs. Your earlier comments on this led to my current system – thanks! I currently use the smart quotes transformation rather than ty...

Re: Dashes and hyphens

I avoid using en-dashes and en-dashes in the editor for this reason – my writing font makes the differences hard to see. Instead, I turn off "Smart dashes and ellipses", put the ellipsis auto-convert in the Mac keyboard settings, and put replacements in my Compile options – two hyphens bec...

Re: Turn off word suggestions

We're not talking about auto completion here. We're talking about macOS's ordinary spell check while typing, which you can see in Textedit, et al. With respect, @starsky confused the little Mac pop-up (which has an "x"-shaped close button at the left and only ever provides one option) with...

Re: Scrivener Update; Invalid Serial Number?!?!?!

Folks, please see this thread: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=57577 Dig out your old license email, and where it's asking for name/email, put in the License Name from that email. It's your name, exactly as you typed it when you bought your license. If you don't hav...

Re: How To Get An Outline in Scrivener into Scapple - And Back.

Actually, it's pretty easy to go from Scapple to Scrivener—there's a couple of different ways to get that done. But the other direction—no. My preferred tools for this sort of thing are a white board and iThoughts. And I know of nothing that does a round trip the way I'd like it done.

No one here is likely to know anything about Mellel, as this is a user forum for a competing product, Scrivener.

Re: [Beta 18] Font problem with iOS version (Bug?)

This font mismatch issue can arise even between Mac and iOS. IOS has hardly any built-in fonts. My solution is to use free fonts and install a version both on my Mac and on my iOS devices. There are several sources of quality free fonts. Personally I use https://fontsquirrel.com because it lets me i...

Re: how to re-style "no style"

I too change up my writing font ("no-style") periodically just to keep my eye sharp for errors. (Besides, I get bored. :D) Here's how: First, in Scrivener > Preferences , click on Editing in the top bar. Then click on the Formatting button. Set up your new "no-style" in the sampl...

You're welcome! Just trying to think of things that might trip me up in the same circumstance. But you seem to be good to go!
